Contact: Matt Hudson, 423-346-6294
WARTBURG, Tennessee:The Obed Wild and Scenic River announces two programs on Saturday, August 3. First, bring any questions you have and come join National Park Service rangers for a free cup of coffee at Lilly Bridge from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (EDT). Then, meet at Lilly Bridge at 11 a.m. (EDT) for our Climb with a Ranger program. If you have ever wanted to try the sport of rock climbing but did not know where to begin, let us help eliminate some of the uncertainty for you. We provide all of the gear. All that you need to bring is drinking water, sturdy footwear, a willingness to try new things and a can-do attitude. Depending on participant interests and ability levels, participants will travel to one of several different climbing areas around the park and will have participants back to their vehicles by approximately 3 p.m. (EDT). Would be rock climbers of all ages are encouraged to attend. These programs will be held regardless of weather conditions.
Attend one program or both. No reservations are necessary for these free events. For more information regarding these events, please contact the Obed Wild and Scenic River at 423-346-6294.
